Curriculum / Learning

Dixons City Academy is committed to providing a curriculum that will prepare students for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life and meet the aims of the Academy Value Statement.

The aims of our curriculum are to:

  • maximise student progress in all areas, regardless of ability, disability, gender or race
  • foster successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve
  • encourage confidence in our students so that they are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives
  • ensure that our students become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society
  • ensure that students develop the essential skills for learning, life and employment by incorporating personal, learning and thinking and functional skills into their curriculum offer
  • encourage students to develop the skills needed for employment by including opportunities for business challenges and applied learning in real contexts
  • ensure students have high aspirations and self-esteem and accept responsibility for their learning
  • offer students the opportunity for moral and spiritual reflection in order to promote positive emotional health and confidence.


    We do this by offering a curriculum that is personalised, which is broad, balanced and coherent.
